Dehler 25 (Dehlya 25) - 1987 - £7,250 New Listing, Draft Details
The Dehler 25 is a well proven design, easy to handle with sparkling performance and
Water ballast helping to reduce her weight for road trailering.
This is a good example of these superlative lifting keel trailer-sailers, with a good inventory, a Yanmar 1GM10 Diesel Inboard and a Dehler 4 wheeled braked road trailer with separate launching trolley.
To all intents and purposes 'Bluebird' would be described by most as a Dehler 25, but in
fact she was built and supplied as a Dehlya 25 (denoting that she was originally sold as a
'Sailaway' boat by Dehler with a series of factory packages for home completion). Having
said that, it is clear that the manufacturer's intention was that the 'packages' should be
simple to assemble and fit to a 'sailaway' boat, with the consequence that 'Bluebird' doesn't look to be any less than factory finished. Over the years additional/alternative equipment has been fitted which complicate the picture yet further. Suffice to say; as currently presented - most would be very hard-pushed to deduce that 'Bluebird' is anything other than a very presentable and trailerable, later vintage Dehler 25, with an inboard diesel engine and a substantial four-wheeled 'piggyback' trailer.
The current ownership has run for eighteen years since 2001 and in that time this yacht has received considerable attention: The keel has been replaced, along with all bearings and locating pads; a replacement Yanmar 1GM10 diesel was fitted, which also had a major overhaul in 2012; The standing rigging was renewed in 2011/12, the underwater surfaces are Copper-coated (2005 and again in 2015). Meanwhile the trailer has had new
suspension units, three new wheels a replacement hitch and new winch fitted.
